Surprise!! I already knew!!

I guess its pretty obvious that yesterday was a shitty ass bad day. Its just that sometimes being separated from my family hits a little harder then other times.

So last night, with McHubby and I both emotionally drained from raising a teenager, I finally voiced what had been on my mind for the past couple days. I can't tell you here what it is, because it will ruin it for a couple of our RL people who read this. But... I can tell you that by telling him what was on my mind... I ruined a surprise he had planned. (hee hee... of course if you emailed and asked I could probably tell you... :D )

I've mentioned before McHubby LOVES surprises... I honestly think that to him, a surprise might actually be better than some good ol' sexy time. He goes out of his way to try and find ways to surprise me...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE surprises! I love it when he does something (big or little) that catches me off guard. Thing is, I love them but I'm not very good at them. I get this gut feeling that there's something up, and I cannot let it drop.

This was one of those cases. I pestered him enough last night that he spilled the beans. Then I was over the moon, but at the same time, sad because I ruined it for him.

So to squash my guilt, and t make him smile his goofy sexy "I got my way"smile I'm going to do something nice for him... I'm going to tell him what I want for Christmas.

McHubby, listen carefully... here are the ground rules I'm putting in place for this.

I DO NOT want you going out to purchase everything that is on this list.
I do NOT want you to be sad if you cannot get the things on this list... just... store them away for future reference.

Ok? ok! Here you go baby. I hope it makes you smile

1) Heels... I was packing this weekend and realized that don't own any. ANY! It made me sad. When I was growing up, my mom never had a pair of heels. She always wore these sensible black shoes, and I always thought she should have had a pair. I think they would have made her smile. I know the though of owning some sexy shoes of my own makes me smile. But... I've got to be honest... I'm going to end up wanting more then one pair.. (in fact I want all 5 below! lol... and a black pair... but... we'll start with one...
2) You are awesome at this one... and I know its been hard because of the distance. But... do you remember when you were working at the airport and we were living in Mississauga, and you used to bring me flowers after your morning shifts? I LOVE that about you. I want a vase... just one... somewhere in the house. One that will always have flowers in it. Flowers that you buy me (or the kids on my birthday and mothers day :P) It doesn't have to be filled with roses or anything. It could be daisies, or even flowers you pick from our front garden. I don't care. As long as they're there.
3) I have wanted a charm bracelet ever since I was a little girl. I've never had one, and I've entered about 5 blog contests this month alone, just for a shot of getting one. The charms? You can pick them. As long as they have meaning... to us... then I'll love them. (oh yeah... and if you don't like this idea, I could go for the watch we never ended up getting this summer :)
4) I dream of dinners together as a family... meals simmering on the counter as I clean the house, or while we take some family time. I love love love that thought. I dream about it. ALL the time. The house filling with the smell of a great dinner, meals together around the table, talking about our day... I promise not to open it and be like that woman who gets a vacuum for Christmas. This is truly on my I want list... one smoking cool slow cooker (I like the ones where the inside thing comes out so its easier to clean. like the one my folks have.

5) and last but not least, one of these...
I know... its frowned upon to give gift cards for Christmas, but that's what I want. I need clothes... nice fancy meet your friends/family/co-workers clothes. It seems my wardrobe has shrunk to a couple pairs of jeans, and sweat pants. I don't want to be that mom, and I DO NOT want to be that wife. Working at the shelter, holding someones hand as they puke all over me, cleaning out the "dungeon" as the sewer backs up while I stand on boxes... the wardrobe was practical... its not any more, and I want the new life to start on the right foot... AND... the gift card works because its easier then asking you to buy me clothes for a couple reasons.
I think that's it... that's my list... :)


  1. I love this idea! I think I am going to blog a list for my hubby ~ beause well, if we don't share these things (with pics)... sometimes they just don't know. (at least my mchubby!)

  2. What a great idea! And great ideas! I may have to do this because then my hubby can't magically forget what I have not so subtly hinted at during the year for various occasions!

    Oh - the crockpot!!! I have that one, but with the digital read out LOVE IT!!! It's awesome! I've had crock pots before, ones you just turn the knob to turn it on and off. But the digital one is awesome! No guessing or trying to remember what time you turned it on, Or over cooking it! This thing counts down how long it has left to cook, and when it's turns the heat to warm! And counts up how long it has been warming! I'll never go back to the knob turning days of crock pots!

  3. Love the shoes! And now I'm so curious as to what the surprise was!!
